Missing teeth also lead to additional Boise dental problems since the surrounding tissues try to heal and adjust to the structural change. In fact, your Boise dentist says that the bone where a missing tooth used to be can start to shrink and adjacent teeth then start to shift, throwing off the natural balance of your bite. In addition, Boise dental patients with missing teeth frequently have difficulty eating certain types of food and may even notice changes in their speech patterns.
All in all, people living with missing teeth can eventually compromise your daily quality of life!
Your Boise dentist at Summit Dental Group will perform a thorough exam and discuss your Boise dental goals and concerns before making a recommended treatment action for a tooth replacement. Boise dental implants are now considered the gold standard for tooth replacement and can provide many Boise dental patients with a durable, natural looking and functional prosthetic tooth that can last a lifetime with proper Boise dental care.
Boise crowns and bridges and dentures are also great options for patients needing several or all of their teeth replaced. Boise dental implants can also be used to secure your Boise crowns and bridges or dentures, alleviating the need for daily adhesives and other problems associated with slippage. If you have missing teeth, schedule a consultation with your Boise dentist at Summit Dental Group to discuss your options because Boise dental health is an important part of overall good health!
